Bonlando: A Freelance Graphic and Web Designer

Welcome to Bonlando Creative. My name is Tyler Bohnet and this is my portfolio. I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. I have a lovely and talented wife named Maria Berlando (the "lando" to my "Bohn") a really cool clone son named Hayden Oliver and a girl named Helayna Scarlett. I love coffee in the morning, beer and/or wine at night, a good graphic novel during the day and I swear by my wacom tablet.

I have a diploma in graphic arts, over 8 years experience in the print industry, and over 4 years as a graphic designer and web designer/developer. I am able to design you an effective and attractive print piece or logo, as well as design, develope and maintain a website from the ground up all the way to SEO and mobile device design.

When I'm not glued to my computer screen designing things from web pages to print brochures to corporate identities, I run a dj service that is mostly hired to play weddings and corporate events; it's great fun – a value I hold, just under integrity and ambition.

Web Design and Developement

Print & Brand Identity

Web Design and Developement

As a veteran of the print industry, I approach the design aspect with a print designer's mindset, yet retain the skills necessary to code a clean, well rounded, and easy to navigate website. A website should be unique, creative and simple enough to keep users coming back.

I offer custom wordpress theme's, built from the ground up that allow the owners to:

  • easily update and manage any section of their website.
  • maintain an ecommerce site with a customizable online store.
  • add images to a gallery and much more.

This is available with out having to know ANY code.

Along with these skills, I have a great understanding about search engine optimization and search engine marketing that allow the customer to enjoy higher search rankings.

Branding and company identity

Every company needs an identity. Whether you are self-employed, starting a business, or looking to refresh your current brand, I can help. A strong brand is essential to getting recognized in the corporate world, and once that brand is developed, it must be consistent. Typeface, colors, positioning and relevance play important roles in designing a proper and effective logo. I will explore and develop a brand to make you stand out among your competitors.

Print Design

The majority of my experience comes from the print world. I am willing and able to design individual or package projects from business cards, trade show booths, large displays, banners, signs, flags, brochures, monthly reports, catalogues, menu's and anything else you can think of.

I have many contacts and vendors at my disposal with a vast knowledge of the production process. This enables me to get the best product at an affordable price.

After 10 years of playing underground techno music, I have decided to recoup the costs of rarely ever getting paid for a gig and supplement my income by playing weddings, corporate events, sweet 16's, bat mitzvahs or anything that involves a paycheck. Armed with a large library of everything from 80's and 90's dance and hip hop (my personal favorite) to disco, house, country, swing, soul, funk, and of course, your classic cliché wedding songs such as "The Chicken Dance", "The Locomotion", or "Sweet Caroline". Extra costs for playing "The Macerena".

I take care of all the sound and lighting if necessary. I will make sure I play the right music for the demographic of your party by meeting with you prior. Please contact me for a quote and references.
